I've got a condition that I've been ignoring like a fracture from a door slam AND carpal tunnel bad. Constant pain and numbness and tingles and nerve burning etc. I've worked w/ a hammer last 5 days and now can't sleep 4 the pain;just wondering about the combination of drugs being too much?
I'm not sure you are accurate in saying that you have been taking 500mgs of hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is only sold as a formula mixed with acetaminophen (tylenol) where the first number in the script is the amount of hydrocodone (5, 7.5 or 10mg) and the second number is the amount of acetaminophen such as 325, 500, 650, etc. The numbers will appear like "5/500 APAP" meaning 5mg of hydrocodone with 500mg acetaminophen. If you are taking 800mgs ibuprofen with one hydrocodone, you are ok. Never take more than 1000mg of acetaminophen at one time and no more than 4000mg in 24 hours.
